We’re on a mission to inspire the next generation
of scientists and space explorers.
Here’s our story…
In 2010, Unlimited Theatre’s artistic director Jon Spooner accidentally set up his own space agency. The Unlimited Space Agency (UNSA) started as a way to tell inspirational stories that would encourage children to study STEM subjects. UNSA’s early projects had award-winning success working with some of the world’s most prestigious science organisations including the Science Museum Group, Met Office, the Royal Observatory and the UK and European Space Agencies.
In 2017, we built a fully mobile replica of UNSA’s HQ (Jon’s garden shed) and toured it to festivals across the UK, sharing inspirational stories about science to more than 20,000 people. Our live audience since then has built significantly with more than 50,000 young people and their families experiencing The Space Shed live in 2019. In 2019, we also launched our podcast, Live from The Space Shed. Each episode shares conversations with the super cool scientists and climate experts that we’ve met while touring The Space Shed.
We hope you’ll join us in encouraging the curiosity,
creativity and learning of our future experts!
